    I’m definitely going to follow your thread! I’ve booked a band for my wedding, I’m having the band sing our first dance “say you won’t let go” James Arthur, decisions decisions! Xx

    Why not both?!  I’m doing band for the reception and DJ for the ceremony 🙂

    We had both.

    The band did 45 minute sets and the DJ would come on during breaks. We were asked if we wanted them to perform our firt dance but I declined. Our lead singers were awesome but nobody could do it like the original…LOL

     My brother and SIL had this song played by a band as their first dance song. It sounded great!

    We’re having a band but they won’t be playing our first dance – we’ll just be using an iPod to play that. The band did offer to learn the song we’re using for our first dance, but our dance teacher recommended using the exact same version that we’ve been practicising to. She said that she has seen bands play the song slightly differently to the recording, which has caused confusion and mistakes with the couple dancing. Instead, our band are learning the song we’ve picked for our joint father/daughter and mother/son dance – we aren’t learning any choreography for this, so there isn’t really much that can go wrong.
